In the face of COVID-19 fears, the show will go on at the Fisher Theatre this week, and for Broadway in Detroit's future productions.

But the company -- which is currently staging "Fiddler on the Roof" a the Fisher -- did issue a statement Thursday, March 12, about the situation and its preparations moving forward.

Broadway in Detroit says that it has "significantly increased the frequence of cleaning and disinfection in all public and backstage areas beyond our standard daily schedule." It's also added alcohol-based sanitizers in the Fisher Theatre lobby.

The company has called off "all non-essential cast activities" for its productions until further notice, including Stage Door and other meet-and-greet programs.

Patrons experiencing symptoms are encouraged to stay away from the shows and contact their point of purchase about ticket exchanges and refunds.

"We remain vigilant and we are prepared to make decisions on current recommendations as well as in response to changing conditions," the statement says.

After "Fiddler" wraps on Sunday, March 15, Broadway in Detroit moves on to the award-winning "Dear Evan Hansen" and has at least one show booked every month into 2021 at multiple venues, including the Detroit Opera House and the Music Hall Center.
